My thoughts on seeing this is maybe Fredrik will bring out a fun, lighter side of Bethenny.
Fredrik is back in NYC after about a week of celebrating his 40th birthday in Italy and France with his husband, Derek. He was also celebrating his new line of rosé. Once he returned he had a couple more reasons to celebrate.
In case you missed it, Fredrik and Bethenny have a new Bravo show. Their new series “follows two fan favorite powerhouses, Bethenny Frankel and Fredrik Eklund, as they come together in their new venture as real estate moguls and business partners. Viewers will watch as they tackle the ups and downs of scouting, buying and designing multimillion-dollar properties. The series shows a side of Bethenny and Fredrik, often through their humorous dynamic, that fans have never seen before as they make big flipping gambles in the hopes of even bigger payouts.”
Also, upon Fredrik’s return, he purchased another posh NYC apartment at 1 Seaport, an all glass building that he holds all the listings on. The property is a two bedroom on the 46th floor that seems to be a step down from his current apartment. Don’t get me wrong, the new place is glorious. But I think he bought it as an investment and possible rental property. I thought it might have some connection to the show, but it is a brand new property and not something that needs flipping. Also, I have this vague memory of him in a high rise last season talking about what a great deal all the listings were and thinking about buying one himself. Maybe. I could be making that all up.
At any rate, Fredrik’s life just gets better every single day. There is something about his successes that just make me super happy for him.
Fredrik, Ryan and the new guy return to our TVs on Thursday, May 25 when the new season of MDLNY premieres at 9 pm EST.
